So, after getting my eyes examined at the optometrist's (no change in prescription!), and having them dilated, I had to basically veg out, since I couldn't see. Ack. That lasted a few hours, and then I hit the books:

I finished reading six Osprey books:

First was Osprey New Vanguard #161: Ships of the American Revolutionary Navy which was pretty good.

Second was Osprey Men-at-Arms #399: Medieval Scandinavian Armies (2): 1300 - 1500 which deals with a period that I find useful.

Then, Osprey Men-at-Arms #409: The Hussite Wars 1419 - 36, which dealt with history of which I knew nothing.

Next, I've got a hankering to peruse what they have on the Middle East wars, next of which was Osprey Men-at-Arms #128: Arab Armies of the Middle East Wars 1948 - 73, which gave some background which explains why the Arab armed forces acted as they did.

Then Osprey New Vanguard #93: Modern Israeli Tanks and Infantry Carriers 1985 - 2004, which I found fascinating, especially when they used their stockpiles of captured Russian-made equipment to make their APCs.

Lastly, I completed reading Osprey Elite #18: Israeli Elite Units since 1948, which details some history about the Palmach that I'd never known. Nice.

(Speak, or forever hold your peace)

This ain't no party, this ain't no disco...
